A Twist in the Tale – Storytelling Performance by Fran Stallings (27/10/2014)

Fran Stallings brings wry, rueful, hilarious, and poignant tales from all parts of the globe. Get ready to laugh and nod in recognition that things don’t always turn out the way we expect!

About Fran Stallings:

FRAN STALLINGS grew up in a tradition of family storytelling. Although she trained as a biologist (and that's another story) she has been a professional storyteller since 1982. As an Artist In Residence for the Oklahoma Arts Council since 1985, she has reached many thousands of students K-12; she reaches thousands more through her workshops training their teachers and librarians in storytelling and its curriculum applications. Fran conducts workshops, residential courses, and festival performances nationwide, in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau and Egypt.

She has been an instructor at the National Summer Institute of Storytelling and at the National Congress on Storytelling in Education.

She received the 2009 John Henry Faulk Award from the Tejas Storytelling Association for her contributions to the art of storytelling in the Southwest.

Fran currently lives in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. When she is not travelling to perform at festivals, to teach the art of storytelling, or to serve as an artist-in-residence in schools, she writes professional articles, songs, and English retellings of Japanese tales.
